"back into a small city area or even a garbage dump to find materials to use..."
Exactly! That is why one of my posts mentioned automobile tires for soles. We do have to assume that we have the necessary skills to make shoes out of
tires. I originally thought that was the topic of the thread; however, it does seem that the thrust is the selection of good quality and appropriate
The only thing that seems to have gone awry on this thread is me. I came along for the self-sufficiency interests, which is not the apparent topic. As
for there being anything left over from a "crash", have you seen a good pair of Aztec shoes recently? Furthermore, life after the general fall of
civilization would not be particularly easy because of the two legged predators. It is, however, a topic that interests me greatly.
I have a modest library of "life skills" books ranging over a wide spectrum of topics. The "Fox Fire Series" is wonderful, but no mention of
shoes. I also keep physics, math, chemistry, biology, machine shop, prospecting, blacksmithing, and many other good books on hand. So, you see, I'm
not trying to be a rabble rouser, I'm just trying to goad these experts a little deeper into their interests. I want that information.
